Curbside Recycling Inspections
July 29, 2016
Contamination of curbside recycling is anongoing issue in many communities across BC. Recent recycling audits completed by Multi-Material BC (MMBC) indicate that contamination levels are increasing in North Cowichan.
To avoid potential fines from MMBC, North Cowichan will be completing cursory inspections of curbside recycling items to ensure styrofoam, glass, film plastics and other foreign items are not included in curbside recycling bins. These inspections will occur throughout August 2016 and our collection contractor will continute to monitor contamination levels thereafter.
